QUOTE OF THE DAY: Tom Hooper on Character

"I get very few original screenplays where the character writing is anywhere near as good as when the characters are drawn from history....

I'm tired of scripts where the character is just a function of the plot, but I am consistently drawn to iconic figures who are highly flawed. It isn't difficult to humanize them because they have such an active struggle."

- Tom Hooper, director of "The King's Speech". USA Today, 11/26/10.
